Why did we not ask for 10-year studies of similar agricultural areas to get an idea of what is really true? Did we think the wind companies would not stretch the truth or tell us everything we didn’t think to ask? Is the glitter of the dollar so great we cannot protect our citizens by possibly unwise decision-making?
Tipton County is one of the garden spots of the world. It would seem many do not understand what this means. Outside revenues should not be needed to save the family farm.
It would seem any revenues generated will be swallowed up by lower property value for individuals, plus it certainly curbs any citizen growth of our county in the turbine areas, which is in direct correlation to our declining school enrollment.
It is possibly time to issue a two-year moratorium so the full impact of wind power, both pro and con, can be studied in depth.
